Using Maps to Tell Stories
Presenter: Sue Long
Saturday, July 24, 2021   10:30am - 12:00 pm

In 1687, Thomas Holme, the Surveyor General of Pennsylvania, made a map for William Penn so Penn could persuade investors back in England to buy land in his new colony - Pennsylvania. Learn how Sue identified some of the early landowners. The names on Holme’s map turned into people with voices of their own. We can hear these stories after 300 years.
